    Not Worthy Mineral foot soaks

    I read an article by Michelle Knowles that says mineral foot soaks are very popular with owners of active dogs. Anyone do this?

    Add a little apple cider for those foot lickers and let air dry. I have so many clients say they lick so much less for a week or two.

    A little off this, but I had a period of strange body aches and pains, muscle tension. Magnesium soaks were wonders. You can take all the magnesium you like orally and even Dr Oz agrees magnesium orally barely absorbs. Put it on your skin to soak in. Revelations!! It worked but put in enough and soak a solid 20 minutes. No more grooming aches and pains, and I bet it would work dogs??

    Forgot even as foot soaks alone. Heavy metals in the body fall to the feet and build up in feet. Mineral soaks even with Epsom release the buildup from the feet, the water can become very discolored, easy peasy and very pleasant to soak your feet.

    I saw some epsom balls with lavender and wondered how they'd be in my shower head. Probably good lol. My tub is too huge too use. I like the idea of using them as a soak. Are you using magnesium made specifically for dogs or something else? Where did you read the article?

    We have been doing soaks for years. So I use both raw ingredients and soos dead sea salt. Our most popular way to apply is to put a couple table spoon in container with water and pour over pet. I both used recirc and have left very diluted on or stronger then rinsed as you will feel the salt in coat.
    Dogs immediately relax. Even ones I've known to be anxious for 15 years.
    My husband suffered from anxiety attacks and things like caffeine and stress deplete your magnesium. So everyone needs to replenish.
    Right now I do mix of Epsom, Himalayan salt, dead sea salt, maybe a drop of essential oil, and recirc through say the feet and leave on. Great for yeast. I also have dead sea mud I use too.
